I’m Michael, or Coach, an ex coach and math teacher for public schools. To pay for college I worked in a mill shop and in construction. While teaching and coaching I continued to build to supplement my teaching salary to support our family. I mostly worked for family and close friends or for the schools during the summers. In ’13 I retired from coaching so my wife and I could chase grandbabies. That fall I was approached by a winery to design and build the wine racks using repurposed wine barrels for their new tasting room in Fredericksburg, Tx.  This became a kick-start for our new business, Sides Designs.

I enjoy working with wood and building pieces from repurposed materials or designing that special creation to fit a certain niche. We are a young business but long in years and experience. We love what we do and are excited for our customers to enjoy the fruits of our labor.  Take a gander at our ever-growing galleries and let us fill that special niche for you.
